BULAWAYO, Fri­day, Septem­ber 16, 1966 — In the gen­eral “reshuf­fle” of mag­is­trates now tak­ing place,Wankie has lost one of its most pop­u­lar fam­i­lies. Mr WF Hen­ning, se­nior mag­is­trate, has been moved to Sal­is­bury on pro­mo­tion. Mr and Mrs Hen­ning (BH) and Pam, to the Wankie com­mu­nity spent four years in Wankie.

In that time they took a full and ac­tive part in the life of the com­mu­nity. They are keen ten­nis play­ers and have al­ways taken a lively part in the Wankie ten­nis cham­pi­onships (Pam and part­ner won the women’s dou­bles this year.)

Last year Bill won mixed dou­bles. Both coached Wankie’s ju­nior ten­nis en­thu­si­asts. Both were mem­bers of the Dol­phin Swim­ming Club and Pam — a com­mit­tee mem­ber — used to teach baby Dol­phins their first strokes. The three Hen­ning chil­dren, Vyvyan (11), Philip (9) and Linda (6) are keen swim­mers. Philip holds the Mata­bele­land Colours for the back­stroke , but­ter­fly stroke and crawl — Vyvyan has an eye on win­ning Colours this sea­son. All three chil­dren are keen horse rid­ers.

Their fa­ther con­vened the horse sec­tion of Wankie’s agri­cul­tural shows. Pam was sec­re­tary-treasurer of the Wankie Women’s Guild; and is a Ro­tary Ann. Bill was re­cently elected pres­i­dent of the Wankie Ro­tary Club. He was chair­man of the Churchill Me­mo­rial Fund, spon­sored by the Ro­tary Club.

This fund has raised £2 000. Pam was a work­ing mem­ber of the Par­ents-Teach­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion of Thomas Coul­ter School and has been relief teacher when any of the staff were off duty through ill­ness. Bill was chair­man of the school coun­cil. Many farewell par­ties were given for them in Wankie. They are now liv­ing in the home they built at North­ward, Sal­is­bury.
